COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hybrid US/UK pale ale.
With an abundance of hops and a sweet caramel backbone, this is a true session beer. A grassy, nutty and flavourful malt body is balanced by citrusy hops and a touch of spice. Clocking in at 34IBU’s, this beer is just bitter enough to keep the hopheads coming back without being crushingly dry or astringent.

Note: Also available dry hopped as Augusta Ale Extra Hoppy (AAXH).

[3670-20110408] Cask. Light citrus notes in the aroma otherwise not much. Slightly hazy, bright orange body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Light tree bark citrus flavour has some toasted peel notes. Medium body. Bitter and tasty, so far so good, though maybe a little green. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

UPDATED: APR 13, 2011 on tap at the Burger bar. Mild hop aromas. Light orange colour. A nice citrus, hoppy ale, without an assault on the palate. Above average palate. Hits the mark.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2011 2011-05-06. Crisp orange amber body with a nice foamy white head and lace. 3+ flavor is pleasantly hoppy, mild green hops and mild resin, modest orange citrus with a citrus oil like twist to it. 7+ aroma is modest but pleasant, orange citrus is entangled with modest resin character. Average palate is a bit light and lightly carbonated, but pretty decent for a cask. Significantly better than previous sample. 7/3/7/3/15 Cask dry-hopped with Simcoe, Burger Bar, Toronto

2011-04-08. Crisp golden orange, nice white head and lace. 3+ interesting hop character. Herbaceous leafy character and very muted citrus kiss. 6+ Flavour has similar green herbaceous hops, floral hints, grassy touches linger in the finish, mild pale malt base but hops are the main event. Lingering leafy notes in the finish. Smooth average palate. Decent but the hop profile is not to my own tastes. Other ratings reference more citrus than I found in it so perhaps I will re-rate this if future samplings are more to my tastes. 7/3/6/3/15 At Volo, Toronto

garthicus (2592) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 8, 2011
UPDATED: APR 17, 2011 Augusta Ale - Burger Bar Appearance: golden orange, very little visible carbonation & a small snow white head.  Aroma: quite a grassy nose at first, mildly spiced with some good malt & woodiness.  Flavour: Grainy & grassy up front, quite a nutty undertone with hints of spices. Quite flavourful with an enjoyable malt finish. It’s quite sessionable indeed!

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2011
Draught pint at Burger Bar. Mostly clear and bubbly amber-gold with an average and lasting frothy white head (3+). Aroma is bready yet grassy with hint of a delicate treefruit (not apple) - no detectable alcohol. The taste morphs quite a bit - initially sweetroll dough, then reasonably strong but quick-fading grassy-herbal bitterness, then settling to a weak peach-pear sweetness with vague grassy bitterness and once again zero alcohol. Light, almost watery body, a hint of astringency, mild carbonation and a quick, dry finish. I like that this is light and fruity but definitely NOT sweet - frankly my overall score is a little lower because I am rating this on a cold and miserable March day - this is a terrific summer session beer for patio pirchers. *** Re-rated April 5th - hoppier this time, quite good.

Tap at Burger Bar. Pale golden pour with a thick tight head. The nose is fresh and hoppy. Bright orange and grapefruit citrus over a very clean crackery pale malt base. Fresh and crackery with a nice bright malt expression. Really damn tasty.
